call centre couple
 n.— «The Call Centre Couple, will transform India’s family structure, markets and workplace as we know them today. Why is this Call Centre Couple (CCC) the symbol of the NMC and how will they influence markets, work and family? The CCC is a young family where both husband and wife have college degrees and both have to work to economically survive and achieve their aspirations. Neither wants to have their parents live with them. They believe parents will deprive their freedom and independence, and possibly interfere in their new lifestyle. In other words, parents are no longer an asset, but bordering on becoming a nuisance or a liability.» —“Call Centre Couple trend is inevitable” by Jagdish Sheth Economic Times (Gurgaon, Haryana, India) Jan. 9, 2009.
